While on my three week tour of China, I stayed at the Lijiang Waterfall Hotel in Guilin, China. At 8:00 every night the largest manmade waterfall descends down the front of the hotel's front facade. Beautifully lit, it is quite impressive. I just loved it. Inside the hotel was perfect and elegant.

The hotel is great: rooms are nice, breakfast and location is excellent. At night a night market came up during my stay which had food stalls that serve up bite-sized goodies, and places that sell some pieces you can pick up for souvenirs. The hotel becomes something of an attraction as well as the waterfall in the name suggests -... More

Really enjoyed the location across from a park like setting with the water, walking paths and the decorative pagodas. Just a short walk to food and shopping. Took a walk around the water and saw many distinctive bridges and the original city gate. Room was nice and clean with a great view. Main entry elevator VERY slow...tip, take the escalator... More

This is a huge hotel which is conveniently located next to the pedestrian street. The level of English of the staff is good enough which is not always the case in China. The rooms are comfortable and clean, though the safety box in the room didn’t work very well. The breakfast buffet includes delicious sushi which really surprised me. I... More

We stayed for 3 nights recently. Overall, it was a very disappointing stay. 1. One side of the hotel is next to a loud bar with loud music after 12am everyday. The hotel staff initially refused to change our room to a quiet one. 2. Once pressed, they changed us to a “smoking” room even we explicitly request a non-smoking... More

This hotel is comfortable. Our room didn't have an interesting view but It was wide, clean and comfortable and the bathroom is huge with possibility of taking a bath and shower, both being separated. The breakfast buffet was very good. The service was excellent. It is at few steps from the market and shopping streets. Excellent location. The only thing... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. This is a large hotel with an artificial waterfall over one of the building side every night and lots of people actually come to watch it. It's typical of a good Chinese hotel. Room: the room was recently renovated, clean, everything works, slippers and bathrobe provided, plenty of space as the room is on... More

Excellent location...but...the two different rooms (on the 9th floor) that we were assigned had filthy rugs, and when the front desk staff was advised, refused to believe the evidence. The buffet breakfast was mediocre. Definitely not a 5-star hotel in our opinion. More like a 3-star mass tourist hotel...

The Lijiang Hotel is the type of hotel of which you will not keep any particular memories, neither good nor bad. It is built in the usual pompous oversized Chinese style. Rooms are good (but no hand shower in the bathroom), internet relatively fast (if you do not hit a censored website), and - mass turism has advantages - most... More
